The purpose of this Dear Tribal Leader letter is to inform Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHE) of their Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) formula allocation estimate for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 and to transmit the forms required for correcting the FY 2022 IHBG formula data and the FY 2023 IHBG Needs data. In the past, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) would mail this information. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, HUD is posting the following information on-line at: https://ihbgformula.com/fy2022/:
- FY 2022 Formula Response Form (FRF) including the FY 2022 FRF Appendices A through D and the FY 2023 IHBG Needs Data (Attachment A).
- Calendar of Critical Deadlines and Frequently Asked Questions.
- FY 2022 Correction/Challenge Log showing changes to the IHBG database between February 19, 2021, and May 11, 2021.
Tribes/TDHEs must review their data on the FY 2022 Formula Response Form and report any changes no later than August 1, 2021, to the IHBG Formula Customer Service Center. Census Challenges for the FY 2023 IHBG Needs data must be submitted no later than March 30, 2022, for consideration for the FY 2023 IHBG formula allocation estimates.
